LIN TV Reaches Deal with Cable One
LIN TV Corp. has reached an agreement with Cable One, the
10th largest cable provider in the nation, for retransmission of its broadcast
stations in both analog and in high-definition.
“We are pleased with the outcome of our negotiations,” said
Vincent L. Sadusky, president and chief executive officer of LIN TV Corp. “Our
stations are leaders in their markets and we’ve made substantial investments to
bring our viewers high definition digital programming. The agreement reflects
fair value to both parties and is in the best interest of the consumer.”
The agreement with Cable One enables subscribers to watch

highly-rated primetime programming, such as House and Are You Smarter Than a 5th
Grader, along with popular syndicated programming such as The Simpsons.
